This is what everyone has been asking for, for years. It does a real shuffle. A fantastic improvement to VLC and makes it useful as a music player. Before this extension VLC was marginal at best for music. The problem is that when you search Google or VLC extensions for "shuffle" or "shuffle playlist" this little gem doesn't appear.

Thanks for your extension !
I hoped your it would save me (and I'm sure it will !)... but atm, I don't see your button in the interface.
Btw, I restarted VLC. I also checked that the extension is shown as "active" in the menu.

Using version 2.1 (Terry Prachett, 2015-04)


Also, could you bind some keyboard shortcut to the function ? e.g ctrl-shift-R, which IIRC, is the winamp shortcut for this function. MPC or any other would probably be a good choice too, anything to avoid having to click.

Finally found it !
it's well hidden, in view -> shuffle playlist

Update or syntax for bindong a shortcut for a plug-in action would still be welcome.
I tried to edit the LUA file, but it would be easier if I knew LUA :). Atm, I only managed to break it.

I need a plugin that allows to play along with the movie musical playlist. Theoretically it is possible to make?

Sorry, but I'm only making extensions that I want to use. The main reason being, it's a major pain in the ass to write them.

VLC extensions are completely underdeveloped, definitely underdocumented and in some ways even outright broken.
